Great news for travelers who enjoy flying. The FAA announced Wednesday that crying babies or children that appear irritable will no longer be allowed to board domestic flights.
"We have counseled with Homeland Security and in an effort to accommodate the crew and our passenger's sanity, your screaming toddler will be held back at Terminal A if he or she is showing any signs of crankiness," FAA Chief, Randy Babbitt told reporters. Later adding, "should the parents wish to leave their children behind, the airlines have agreed to pay cab fare for the child."
According to Homeland Security and the FAA, the new rule will be implemented June 1 2010.
Regular business traveler Jim Schmoyer said, "This is going to be great! It's bad enough sitting in coach, let alone sitting next to a crying baby. It's about time someone stood up for the grown ups."
As an added bonus, the Obama administration said this new rule will help create 125,000 new jobs for angry folks who couldn't get a job at the security checkpoint and enjoy yelling at kids.
"Please remove your shoes, put your pacifier in your mouth, and follow the line with yo boardin pass out. Hold up...baby looking agitated mom. You going to have to leave her behind along with that toothpaste and water bottle."
